2018 Christmas Card Contest
GISD held a districtwide Christmas card design contest for the third year in a row. Students from across the district were invited to create artwork for the chance to be on the 2018 GISD Christmas card. Entries were judged at the campus level, and the top three from each campus were submitted to the district office for further judging. One design from each campus was selected to be on the card, with the first place art winning placement on the front of the card and the second place displaying on the inside cover. All five will be recognized at the December Board meeting.
Thank you to all who participated and congratulations to our campus winners!

On Wednesday, our District Education Improvement Committee (DEIC) met for the second time this year. Once again, questions were gathered by the committee from their peers and presented and discussed at the meeting. The other main topic of this meeting was discussion of give 2019-2020 calendar options. We are setting our calendar early this year!
After a thorough discussion of options, the committee narrowed it down to four calendar options, which will be sent to all staff next week for voting. Holidays, testing windows, staff development days, and placement of bad weather days are all a factor in determining the best calendar for our students and teachers.
The DEIC is comprised of teachers, parents, and community members who were nominated for the committee by campus principals.
